Agreement with Women, Infants and Children locations before county Feb. 3

An agreement to be voted on Feb. 3 by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors includes local Women, Infants and Children sites that give food stamps and other services.

The supervisors, at a meeting that begins at 9 a.m. Wednesday in the Supervisors’ Auditorium, 205 W. Jefferson in Phoenix, are slated to approve and authorize an amendment to a license agreement with Keogh Health Connection, an Arizona nonprofit corporation, to extend the term of the agreement for approximately two years, according to the agenda.

The agreement is for the contractor-use of county public health WIC space to provide assistance with enrollment into Department of Economic Services, Arizona Health Care Cost Containment Systems food stamps and cash assistance services to under-served WIC-eligible children ages zero to 5, their families and pregnant women.

This amendment will extend the term approximately two years commencing Feb. 26 and expire Feb. 28. The agreement also enlarges the number of facilities from eight to nine. There is no cost to the county. Either party may terminate the agreement via 30-day written notice to the other.

The nine locations are at:

  • Broadway WIC, 635 E. Broadway Road, Mesa
  • WIC at Baywood, 6641 E. Baywood Ave., Bldg. C1 and C2, Mesa
  • Mesa WIC, 430 N. Dobson Road No. 111, Mesa
